We are hosting a Period Party! There is one thing that many people know first hand — a lot more goes into having a periods than simply needing hygiene products. To feel dignified and healthy, we often need tampons, pads, panty liners, new underwear, pain relievers, heating pads, chocolate, cleansing wipes, and more. Join Simply the Basics to collect items and put together Wellness Period Packs for people experiencing homelessness in San Francisco. 100% of ticket sales go toward products for people in need.

Adding fun to the impact… we will have an open mic opportunity and comedians will be sharing their «First» and «Worst» Period stories, including headlining comedian and Bay Area star Dhaya Lakshminarayanan! We believe at Simply the Basics that by sharing our real stories fearlessly and unapologetically, we can reduce stigma surrounding menstruation, leading to greater support for people's most basic needs.

There are so many incredible Women's Groups in San Francisco that it can be tough to keep track. To help you navigate the best fit for yourself — we will have leaders and founders from some of the most prominent groups joining us to share their programs with you!

Please bring in additional products! For every in-kind donation that you provide, you will receive one raffle ticket (no limit!) for a chance to win a Magnum Bottle of Wine and a $50 gift card to Straw SF! We will be making a tower of feminine products.

Thank you to Awesome Foundation (San Francisco) for making the event possible!
